Chloe's emotions can change in a millisecond. And she's not one to really hide how she's feeling, either. You know if she's euphoric, or if she's in the depths of despair. I think she would have gotten along quite well with Anne Shirley, truth be known.
The above picture was taken this past spring, and I've been meaning to post this for months (along with hundreds of other photos and thoughts...). The next picture was taken in the same minute, according to my camera. It doesn't have a time stamp that includes seconds, so I couldn't tell you precisely how far apart they were taken, but trust me when I say that there are probably fewer than 10 seconds between that photo and the one below:
Because I took her picture while she was telling me something important. I probably shouldn't do that, I know. I was just thinking how cute and adorable she is, so I snapped a photo.
Wrong thing to do.
Surprisingly, she doesn't deal well with any sort of discipline or criticism, either. It really is a totally different game dealing with her than it is my other two.
So, I'll ask again: Do any of you have a child like this? Because sometimes I have absolutely no idea what to do with her. But then she'll have one of her joyous moments, and that's when I remember how glad I am to have her.
